I completely agree with this point. Exercise the app, label it whatever you want (alpha, beta) but get it in the hands of users and setup the necessary feedback framework to collect input and take action. On a similar note, exercise your business model as soon as reasonable too. Too often, startup companies keep the first day of revenue collection on the horizon. Until you really start collecting dollars, you wont know whether that business plan with the hockey stick growth really does have a basis in reality. Being successful as a startup has everything to do with building a product that people USE. Building a business has everything to do with being nimble, adjusting and striving to hit your goals in the real world, not in excel.
